The settings of TabMemFree has two options. Time out and Tick. The timeout option lets you to set the time interval to allow TabMemfree to make the tab inactive. If you set the time to 5 mins, the TabMemFree waits before it forwards a tab to a blank page. The tick option, once set the time it checks for the inactive tabs in that set time interval.
Once you’re done with the settings, You can click the TabMemFree icon on the top address bar. If the tabmemfree is on, you could see a three arrow rounding the tabmemfree icon. If it is off, then it doesn’t appear.
